now the middle person who is charged. but you don't have the people who the authorities seem to think initiated this whole thing charged. if someone in the adelson family is hiring a hitman and paying her to do it, well then, of course, they're going to charge that person. except no one in the adelson family has been charged. >> what evidence do they have against this woman? >> this financial -- >> the cell phone. >> the cell phone records. she does have these connecti she -- the sorry, so confusing. the parent of her two children is the hitman. right? and she was having an alleged relationship with the adelson. and so you got, they believe, a lot of evidence connecting her to both sides in this. but again, without that connection to adelson, which the prosecutors believe is the reason this happened, the theory that i've got believe, this

will it be you? and that's why linda got me zostavax, a single shot vaccine. i'm working to boost linda's immune system to help protect her against you, shingles. zostavax is a vaccine used to prevent shingles in adults fifty years of age and older. zostavax does not protect everyone and cannot be used to treat shingles or the nerve pain that may follow it. you should not get zostavax if you are allergic to gelatin or neomycin, have a weakened immune system or take high doses of steroids are pregnant or plan to become pregnant. the most common side effects include redness, pain, itching, swelling, hard lump warmth or bruising at the injection site and headache. it's important to talk to your doctor about what situations you may need to avoid since zostavax contains a weakened chickenpox virus. remember one in three people get shingles in their lifetime, will it be you? talk you to your doctor or pharmacist about me, single shot zostavax.
